Hi everyone! I have started tracking my temp and I am a bit confused as to when you actually O. I have noticed a consistent temp and then there was a little spike followed by a dip and now it is steadily rising. Did I O when my temp spiked, when it dipped or when it started to rise?
CD 18 - 35.69
CD 19 - 35.69
CD 20 - 35.92
CD 21 - 35.51
CD 22 - 35.99
CD 23 - 36.39

usually before ovulation you will get a temp dip, then after you have ovulated it will spike back up again - higher than your pre-ovulation temps.
you can use an app like fertility friend and you put in your temps every day and it will tell you when you have ovulated. 3 days of high temps confirm ovulation (according to fertility friend that is)

It's difficult to say when you ovulated as you've had two temp dips quite close together.
I would definitely recommend FF, it's very user friendly
For me, FF confirms my ovulation day as the day of the dip.
Once you have ovulated, it will rise again and continue to until they are consistently higher than your pre O temps.

Another recommendation for FF here
I'd say you O'd on CD 21-22.
